As Colorado skiers and boarders are getting fired up for another winter season, Arapahoe Basin’s head chef Chris Rybak is firing up the kitchen to deliver a culinary experience as exhilarating and diverse as the terrain outside his high-altitude restaurant.

His partnership with A-Basin has allowed a vision to come alive that will likely be pursued by other resorts as they realize the many strengths of the operation. That vision includes a diverse forward-thinking menu, a moonlight dinner series, and a commitment to sustainable practices aimed at reducing waste, promoting recycling and composting techniques, and demonstrating to the public how easy it is to participate.
